Mmmm. Way to make use of all the hand-squeezed lime juice & avocado in my freezer.

I’m sure you have received quite a few questions about the gums…

Out of curiosity, have you experimented with lecithin to give your ice creams/recipes a similar oomph factor? ;-) (Or any other ingredients that impart body/texture like the gums? I have xanthan handy… but no guar gum at the moment.)

Mandy, I have never used lecithin in the ice-cream, but I have used it as a binder in homemade nut milks and kefirs as it keeps the liquids from separating. I’ve also thought about using agar agar in the ice-cream and making a pudding base first, and then freezing it and blending with ice to make ice-cream. However, the gums are just so much easier. You can get a bag of guar gum at http://www.iherb.com for about $5…totally worth the investment if you ask me. :)

Wow, what a fantastic idea! Avocado is pretty much my favourite food (maybe joint first with oatmeal?), and I LOVE ice cream, so this seems like a good combination to me! Got an avo in the fridge waiting to be used. Think I know what I’m gonna do with it! Thanks for this recipe :) xxx

OH. MY. WORD…

I have to make this. I put avocado in pretty much everything (especially cakes and pies that I feed my whole family, gnagna) so I bet I would love this.
